Event description
Discussion of policies & strategies to expand health care access to the remaining uninsured in CA to advance health equity.

About this Event

The California Initiative for Health Equity and Action (Cal-IHEA), in co-sponsorship with the California Latino Legislative Caucus, will be hosting a policy briefing on promoting and protecting immigrant health in California. University of California faculty will present their ongoing research, and we will engage in a discussion focused on strategies to ensure health institutions are safe spaces for all patients, county and local policy alternatives to expand access to care for undocumented immigrants, and experiences of health and social support needs among undocumented senior populations. Please join us for an opportunity to advance the development of policies to protect the health and well-being of California’s immigrant communities.

Cal-IHEA looks forward to an informative gathering and anticipates that the evidence briefing will provoke thoughtful discussion about the ways in which the State can assure that all Californians can live healthy lives, regardless of their legal status.
